Episode 39: Mormons and Critical Race Theory

Six decades after _Brown_, five decades after the Civil Rights Act, has America evolved into a post-racial utopia where racism mostly doesn’t exist? But if that’s the case, then what could explain the persistence of troubling demographic gaps in wealth, education, crime, and dozens of other indicators?

In this podcast, Kaimi joins Janan, Trine and Danielle to discuss some of the explanations set out in a branch of progressive scholarship called Critical Race Theory (and Critical Race Feminism).

Our panel points out some of the gaps in the traditional liberal narratives about race (as well as some troubling racial dynamics in early feminism), and then focuses on responses by Critical Race Feminists, especially Kimberle Crenshaw and intersectionality theory. We also talk about ways in which women of color are depicted in the media (with a special shout-out to classic Mormon Polynesploitation cinema), and whether Mormon female identity is coded white; and we set the stage for extended discussion of family roles in Part II.
